Wonderfully naturalistic bamboo stalk with leaves, sculpted in sterling silver by the famed jeweler Ming's of Honolulu. Now defunct, Ming's was Hawaii's premier jewelry shop during the forties and fifties. The shop was famous for its sterling and ivory renditions of Hawaii's native flowers. Wear this lovely brooch and be reminded of the bamboo leaves of Hawaii or the Orient!
This sizeable brooch is beautifully detailed, with the undisturbed patina of years.
Pinback opens easily and safety catch closes securely.
Stamped "Sterling" and "Ming's" on the back.
Measures approximately 2 and 3/4 inches tall by just under 2 inches wide (see photos).
